      Outside the park so cheaper accommodation option (RM30pp dorm room), in a beautiful mountain setting. But if you have luggage and decide to walk, instead of taking a taxi from the National Park, just be aware it's about 2km walk and there's a few uphil bits! Great location though - where the turnoff is to the Lodge from the main road, there are stalls selling vegetables and fruit. You can use the kitchen at the lodge to make your own food. The lodge has a very homely feel with lounge chairs, tv, verandah to take in the views and very helpful staff. Also, by the food stalls on the main road, you can wait to grab a bus to Kota Kinabalu - extra handy!

      Great breakfast every morning and Leo and the team are very friendly and helpful when advising on Kinabalu climb and national park trails. Side road there is a little tricky with bags!

      You know the saying "It's about the journey, not the destination"? Well, hiking up to the summit of Mt Kinabalu is about both - the entire journey and the final destination. The destination is Low's Peak at 4095.2m, and the journey is just over 8.5km of straight up, up and more up, followed by all down, down, down after you have summited.

Greeted warmly by the owner, we were denied 'our table' by another group. Nevertheless, we tucked in to our favourite dishes and returned home thoroughly ...

After reaching the office my badge was given to me when after, I've heard a polite, yet confident welcoming voice of a short but covered with nothing but muscles (ok, with some clothes on too ) guide. We were off and ready to start. At the start, he also questioned my climbing skills. I had no choice but misleading him and again making him believe I reached ...
